ATHLETE OF THE WEEK (Jan. 23-30): D.J. Fehlman
Warren’s D.J. Fehlman is also a junior, and he’s also approaching a milestone number – with 89 career high school wrestling wins. Fehlman was 5-0 over the weekend to win the 132-pound class of the 30-team Fred Bell Memorial Wrestling Tournament at Grove City High School; a repeat titlist. Fehlman is 22-1 on the season with a match at Oil City on Friday. Collin Fantaskey had 53 points in two Warren boys basketball wins this week, including 32 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in a region win over Harbor Creek, so Fehlman’s distinction this week as Times Observer Athlete of the Week, sponsored by McDonald’s, is well-earned. Eisenhower’s Casey Vincent and Sheffield’s Adam Higby also had nice efforts on the hardwood.
